Part of being an informed insurance buyer, particularly in today’s day and age, is understanding what’s happening in the market and knowing who you can trust to give you accurate information.

In this blog post, we outline some of the reasons why auto rates have been rising. We also provide our best tips for finding affordable coverage. 

The most important thing to remember is that you are not alone. As your local, trusted insurance agency, it is our mission to help you search for eligible discounts and bring your auto policy into alignment with your coverage needs. It is also our job to be as transparent as possible about why the rates are the way they are.

According to research, drivers in the U.S. are expected to spend on average $1,895 more in 2023 for the same coverage they had at the end of 2021.

So, what can you do?

Although many of the issues contributing to rising auto rates are out of your control, there are several things you can try to help reduce the cost of your premium increases.
